The students of Andhra Pradesh are in a state of confusion. They are unsure about whether they need top 20 percentile of JEE Main merit list for undivided Andhra Pradesh or for Telangana and Seemandhra states separately.
On 02nd June 2014, Telangana state will be formed officially, while CBSE would announce JEE Main 2014 results in July.
Students, parents and officials have sent a request to announce separate lists for Telangana and Seemandhra region. More students can access the seats in Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).
Board of Intermediate Education (BIE), Andhra Pradesh secretary Ramshankar Naik said, "They will adopt older method of taking entire Andhra Pradesh as a unit unless the government gives specific directions to release the list separately."
"We will send CDs containing marks of all the students to the CBSE. It is up to them to decide. The board has no role in it," he added.
"If Andhra Pradesh is taken as a unit, few students can make it to the top-20 percentile list. The state government must take up the issue with CBSE," said P. Madhusudhan Reddy, general secretary of AP Govt Lecturers' Association.
JEE Main is the qualifying entrance examination for admission to NITs, IIITs, CFTIs and SFTIs.
JEE Advanced is the qualifying entrance examination for admission to IITs.
